Just passing the details on - If this fucks up your PC, DNBforum takes no responsibility.
People need to start installing firewalls.
I had this shit last night , appreciate the info man I'll get my PC sorted 2night
this one fucked me up last night.... turns out i was one of the first 11 people in the country to get this virus... which im weirdly proud of. Fuck knows how it got in though, ive got all the firewalls / virus scanners you could imagine
note to windows 2000 users... you need service pack 2 installed to run the patch
Ive just got that freebie Zonealarm program, hope no dirty worm slags try and get in my pc!!!
Windows RPC implementation is sorry as shit - anyone can write a buffer overflow on it.
u wanna know annoyance?
my beatch lil sister left my firewall off cos she was busy DLin films.... GRRRR!!!! got the virus innit, tryin my damndest to fix it now.
I just came here to post a thread like this but it appears Stu beat me to it.
As I posted in Waffles, I just got my new PC running which is a Windows XP system (my old one was Win95). I was having a ball, surfing around the web and seeing all the icons pop up nice and fast untill about a half hour into my adventures I clicked on freeagent's freindster post when the now world famous message box popped up (only at the time I didn't know it was so famous and on the TV last night as my mother mentioned):
(this is a gif image, not the real thing)
I thought something was wrong with my computer for the longest time till I called DELL support and heard an automated message about the fact this wasn't a glitch in the OS but a Virus. I figured out how to get the patch and I updated my virus scaner. This took me about 3 hours when all was said and done.
What blows me away is that this virus downloaded and ran on my new computer without any intervention from me at all. This isn't suppose to happen but it does on this Windows XP because of this retarted feature called "Automatic Update". My windows 3.1 machine and Windows 95 machine didn't have this "Automatic Update" so why the frikken hell does Microsoft think I need it now? I got along just fine without it and you know what? I'm not turning it back on!!! I wanted to turn it off when I got this computer last May but I figured since I wasn't hooked up to the internet then It didn't matter...... then look what happens... only a half hour of internet browsing and I get "Automaticly Updated with a VIRUS!" As you British would say..... "BRILLIANT!"
I figured I aught to come back here and mention that I probably got it from this website somehow as thats when my computer first counted down to 0... But it looks like Stu figured this out already and I didn't read the message. Even if I did read the message I would never have beleived that a virus can actually download itself and run, all completely automated... Thats some serious hi-tech virus.
I'll tell you one thing.... Windows 95 fucking ROCKS because no one writes viruses for that OS anymore. Thats why I was fine for the 2 days it circulated around the net as thats what I was using to surf.
And who the hell is SAN? I'll tell you what I know.... I don't LUV him!
Maybe I should set up a firewall? I never did in the past and I've been ok. I'm actually more upset with the 700 messages of spam in my email box every weekend while I'm at the shore. I need to get myself some sort of good free spam filter..... :/
Re: Re: Please read! RPC/DCOM exploit details
Be careful with that one. I had that firewall and Norton Antivirus 2002 at home; they used to cause a lot of problems together.
After getting rid of both programs and installing new AV/firewall software from our ISP, the PC works like a dream.
Re: Re: Re: Please read! RPC/DCOM exploit details
@1992, just use the XP firewall.
Disconnect from the internet. Go to Start|Connect To|, then right-click your internet connection and select properties, and under the last tab, it should have a check-box to activate the firewall. This isn't the best firewall, but it will save you from that stoopid virus. Also, get the removal tool here:
Re: Re: Re: Re: Please read! RPC/DCOM exploit details
Been there done that. I have the patch and I removed WSBlast.exe The name of that virus reminds me of a Force Mass Motion record which has the sample "Techno Blast, Techno Blast, we have the Techno Blast".
i probed port 135 with that shit, it says stealth but i don't know what that means. So am i cool?
